The erotic polaroids of artist Carlo Mollino are reproposed as prints in the new Moschino collection
For the Moschino Pre-Fall 2018 collection, Jeremy Scott delves into the artistic world of 20-century architect, designer and photographer Carlo Mollino, adding a new chapter to the strong union between art and fashion.
Moschino’s creative director includes a selection of clothing and accessories inspired by several works by the Turin-born artist in the collection.
Mollino’s lifetime passions include photography which always played a special role, demonstrated by the more than 2000 erotic Polaroids shot between 1960 and 1973 and found only after his death.
These very photographs, which always portray anonymous models in seemingly lewd poses, are now being re-presented by Jeremy Scott as prints on a selection of ready-to-wear garments, including the overcoat, velvet and plissé silk chiffon dresses for day and evening wear, and they are also offered on a selection of bags including the iconic “B-Pocket” and “Hidden Lock” models.
These items will be available online, at the brand’s main boutiques in Milan, Rome, London, Paris, New York and Los Angeles, through Moschino’s franchise network and at the most prestigious multibrand stores around the world.
